This month I’ll be doing one painting per day for 30 days. My goal is get comfortable enough with the paint brush to enjoy illustrating my stories for myself and my family, and to make artistic expression a daily habit. Welcome to 30 Days of Painting!
Day 17: Misadventures in Water Color, Part 2
Today I learned a valuable lesson: if you do not have a pencil with which to sketch things out, don’t try something complicated, remotely based in perspective, or based on a gorgeous photograph. Also, make sure you have more than half and hour (including drying time between layers).
Nothing to see here, unfortunately!
Lesson learned: if I’m going to try something ambitious, I need to sketch it out first.
